76ers Tickets Guide – Expert Parking And Transportation Tips at Wells Fargo Center
When you have Philadelphia 76ers tickets, you don’t want to miss a beat of the action. Rookie of the Year candidate, Michael Carter-Williams, electrified the Philly crowd and gave fans a taste of what’s in store for the future. With MCW, Nerlens Noel and a total of seven upcoming draft picks, the Sixers will certainly be one of the most exciting teams in the NBA next season. Now that you have your tickets, we’ll get you to your seats in the fastest manner possible. Let’s take a look at all the different options you’ll have available…
Of course, driving is the most direct and reliable route of transportation. But please, make sure you do so responsibly.
From Delaware, Maryland, Delaware County, Chester and I-476 (Blue Route) – Take I-95 North to the Broad Street/Sports Complex Exit. The Wells Fargo Center will be on your right. From Harrisburg, Lebanon, Reading, Pottstown – Take the Pennsylvania Turnpike east to 76 East (Exit 6). Take 76 East towards the sports complex. Take the Broad Street exit. Turn right onto Broad Street, heading southbound. After you cross Pattison Avenue, the Wells Fargo Center will be on your left. From Northeast Philadelphia, Levittown and North – Take I-95 South to the Broad Street exit. The Wells Fargo Center will be on your right. From South Jersey – Take the Walt Whitman Bridge to the Broad Street exit. Turn left onto Broad Street, heading southbound. After you cross Pattison Avenue, the Wells Fargo Center will be on your left.
The arena, located just off of the Broad Street exit on I-95, has eight parking lots that are well lit and patrolled by security personnel. Wells-Fargo isn’t located in a neighborhood area, so secret parking spaces are few, if any. All of the city’s three major stadiums (Sixers/Flyers, Eagles, Phils) share the same complex so there are plenty of spaces available; the only problem is that you won’t get around paying for them.
Taking the train to the game can be pretty confusing, so make sure you pay attention. In the summer of 2010, SEPTA sold the naming rights to Pattison Station (where you have to get off) to AT&T for $5 million. Most Philadelphians will always call it Pattison, so if you’re asking someone for direction, ask for Pattison- not AT&T.
There are two main ways to get to the arena using the SEPTA system. The first is to take an inbound train to Suburban Station and walk through the concourse to the City Hall Station of the Broad Street Subway. The second is to get off the Regional Rail train at Fern Rock Transportation Center – located at 10th and Nedro Streets, in the far north section of Philly. When you get there, go up the steps to the subway at Fern Rock – the most northern stop on the line – and ride it all the way past City Hall, and all the way to Pattison Station (or the hated name by locals, AT&T Station. Pattison station is where you want to get off NO MATTER WHAT!
